BELLE GLADE, Fla. -- A 26-year-old man died in a crash in Belle Glade on Saturday night.

Miguel A. Treto of Belle Glade was driving a 2002 Ford F-150 westbound in the 23000 block of State Road 80 at 11:44 p.m. when he lost control of his vehicle for undetermined reasons.

His truck veered sharply down into the center grass median, struck a concrete drainage culvert, causing it to flip/roll over and eject Treto, who was not wearing a seat belt.

Both Treto and his truck came to final rest within the roadway of eastbound State Road 80, directly in the path of oncoming eastbound traffic.

An approaching Palm Tran bus struck and ran over Treto.

A 2008 Lincoln Navigator struck Treto's Ford F-150 truck, and another vehicle ran over collision debris and sustained minor damage.

Treto was pronounced dead at the scene.

No other parties were injured.
